@ginapet....I'm assuming that's 1/2 CUP of walnuts?
Both recipes sound yummy...I love trying new things.
That's awesome, Foodiegal! Perhaps he needs to come to MY house to show my 6 year old that good, flavorful food will NOT kill him. :) Although I have to admit, he will eat my sushi.
Wow! And I bet he actually sits on the john and takes dumps too! :P
I'm so sorry...I really couldn't resist.
No for me. I too prefer just salt and pepper. I'm not a big ketchup person, and will only eat in on fries, if that.
Kalamazoo, Michigan area here too....Portage to be exact.
Those sound excellent....thank you, Kerry!
Baby food! Not the meats or veggies (unless that's your thing), but the fruits and desserts. After I had oral surgeries, I always liked a nice cold jar of peach cobbler or blueberry buckle. :) Seriously!
@redhead....Yay, another Kazoo'er! I've been in the area for over 20 years and have yet to stop at the Bank St. Market. *cringes*. I WILL make it there this year! I read in the Gazette that they have a farmer's market (albeit very small) at Bronson Hospital every other Friday until April sometime...have you been to that?
@PumpkinBear....same here! I buy them for my 6-year old only because that's the only kind I can get him to eat on sandwiches. Bleah.
Milk. I used to drink it by the gallon and now I can only tolerate it IN things or on cereal. I don't even like chocolate milk.
Brussel sprouts here too. They're still not my favorite, but definitely more palatable than when I was a kid.
Oatmeal and cottage cheese (definitely a texture thing)
Steak (laugh all you want...I hated it as a kid)
If I had 6 hard-boiled eggs handy, they wouldn't last long around here. I like egg salad, or I'll eat them with salt.
It varies for us (I'm a single mom with 2 elementary school-aged boys). Some days it's "normal" (ie 5:30-6pm); other times it's closer to 8. All depends on how I'm feeling that day and if I want to cook. :)
Nothing here. Consider me a heathen as well.
And @lambowner....yes. ;)
@ omnomnom....one word....ewwwwww! :)
What about those people who adhere to the "5-second rule"? I'm sure there's TONS more ick on those pieces of food, than in a single 6-oz can of tomato paste! Just sayin'...:)
I'm always grabbing the leftover bits of fried chicken out of the oil...usually while it's still hot. Why I don't use a utensil for this baffles me.
Glad to know I'm not the only one who eats pizza with a knife and fork. Or fried chicken. And yes, I've even done chicken wings with them. No, I'm not OCD. I eat at my computer quite a bit, and would rather not be wiping my fingers after every bite.
And for those of you wondering...my keyboard tray slides in and out, so no crumbs there. :)
Olives stuffed with anchovies
Eggplant stuffed with spicy Italian sausage
Green peppers stuffed with fresh mozzarella, corn and extra-firm tofu.
Flounder and crabmeat.
@meganesta...Don't feel bad about not having a KitchenAid Mixer...I'm the exact same way. The ONLY time I break out my hand mixer is when I make cheesecake, I can get the filling a lot smoother. Everything else I mix by hand.
@Swampyankee...you can come do my dishes ANYTIME. I would LOVE a dishwasher :)
I have to admit...I love kitchen gadgets...but I don't have a whole lot of room in my apartment. One thing I can definitely do without...an egg peeler. Have you seen those? You're supposed to put a hard-boiled egg in this bellows-like thingie and it pops the shell off. Geez louise...I can peel them faster than that! Waste of money IMO.
@nightowl....Nah, we just love salt too much. Growing up, my dad used to kid with me that he'd have to buy me a salt-lick (you know...the kind that deer like)...LOL. Soy sauce rocks...I love it on scrambled eggs.
Hates: Cooked carrots, cooked peas, low-fat ice-cream, popsicles, PB&J sandwiches, lobster.
Loves: Anchovies, raw hamburger and raw beef in general (yes, I know the risks), licking flakes of sea salt off my fingers, liver and carmelized onions, crispy turkey or chicken skin, okra, scrapple (God, I miss having family on the East Coast...LOL), creamed herring, dulce, mussels and crab legs.
I'm sure I could think of lots of other items, but I'm drawing a blank right now.
